In recognition of the need to facilitate international road transport in the Arab region and to enhance cooperation, trade and tourism between Arab countries, the Agreement on International Roads in the Arab Mashreq was adopted in 2001 and signed by most ESCWA member States. These States sought to set up a work plan in order to establish and develop a green international road network that meets the future needs of transport and traffic.

This study reviews the overall implementation of the Agreement in signatory States, and proposes a systematic plan of action to monitor progress made in this regard, evaluate implementation and analyse obstacles and challenges.
